Rejoicing in Each Day
Have you ever met a chronic complainer? These are the folks who are never happy. Regardless of the situation you may be facing today, one thing is for sure: God made this day … and He wants you to rejoice in it. Psalm 118:24 reminds us that rejoicing is a choice … an act of your will. The writer says, “We will rejoice and be glad in it.” We can choose to rejoice and be glad, or we can choose to grumble, gripe and complain. Choosing the latter doesn’t change the circumstances - it sours your attitude. But choosing to rejoice pleases God and lets your light for the Lord shine among men. Whatever you are facing today, a dead-end job … a stagnant career … financial problems … marital problems … health problems … unemployment … loneliness … the blahs … no matter what, God is greater than your problems. Remember, the greater the difficulty you have, the greater the opportunity for Him to work mightily in your life. Let me encourage you to replace your gripes with praise. You will be amazed at the difference it will make in you and you’ll be a witness to Jesus … the only Real Hope.
